How do you screen for PAD?

A simple screening exam, called an ankle-brachial index, can accurately detect PAD in most cases. This test takes only a few minutes, is highly accurate, and is completely painless and noninvasive.

Vascular surgeons pioneered the development of noninvasive methods for accurately diagnosing PAD, and are the only specialists treating vascular disease today who can perform all treatment options available, including medical management, minimally invasive endovascular angioplasty and stent procedures, and open bypass surgery. Only when you see a vascular surgeon who offers all treatment modalities will you be assured of receiving the care that is most appropriate to your condition.
